 U.S. Circuit Judge Bruce Selya of Providence, RI; ethical misfit


The state of Rhode Island presented Bruce Marshall Selya with a law license in 1958 after he graduated from Harvard University Law School.


President Ronald was duped into appointing Bruce to a seat on the First Circuit Court of Appeals in 1986. Dennis didn’t get the appointment because he was the most qualified lawyer in the greater Providence area. He got it because he had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.


Apparently, when Bruce attended Harvard Law they didn’t offer a course in explaining what constituted a “conflict of interest.”


Bruce found it acceptable to preside over a case wherein the Federal National Mortgage Association was a party despite the fact that he owned at least $15,000 in the company.


Magically, Bruce sold his stock nine (9) days after entering a judgment in the case.


Making matters worse, Bruce also participated in three lawsuits while he owned stock in of the companies involved.


It should be noted that Bruce assumed senior status in 2006. This means that he continues to receive a full salary of $211,200 a year even though he is only required to work ten (10) hours a week. Great gig if you can get it, right?


As we speak (ca. March 2014), Bruce continues to sit as a Circuit Court Judge in Boston, Massachusetts.
